Ford's $20,000 hybrid?
I was checking out new pictures of the third generation Ford Focus on MotorTrend, and I couldn't help but think, why not make the Focus Ford's Honda Insight and Toyota Prius contender?
Imagine a $20,000 American hybrid!?
Hello! You wouldn't be able to keep it in stock. Even if the car lost money per unit for the next few years, imagine the traffic it would bring into showrooms. Imagine the positive press. And, eventually it would make a nice profit.
Make the gas version the econ model. Offer the hybrid in medium and luxury level trims. Maybe do the same for an EV version.
Isn't that the kind of choice America's freedom from foreign oil requires?
